        <td height="114"><span class="style4"> The University of Tennessee has a long history of archaeological research in the Tennessee Valley, beginning before construction of the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA) reservoirs. Over the years the large projects allowed UT archaeologists to develop basic interpretations of past Native American and early Euro-American lifeways in the region. In addition, the TVA/UT archaeology program led to the establishment of the Department of Anthropology in the 1940s and the <a href="http://mcclungmuseum.utk.edu">Frank H. McClung Museum </a>in 1960. The extensive archaeological collections resulting from the seven decades of field investigations by UT archaeologists are curated by the Museum and the Department and continue to be an invaluable resource for professional and student research, and for public programs and exhibits. </span>          <div align="center"></div>          <div align="center"></div></td>
